Sessile Adenomatous Polyp
I am 28.Had a colonoscopy and the doctor removed an 8mm polyp.The doctor said it was NOT an adenoma, but it was a sessile polyp. Is this pre cancer?
Yes: Current concept even though all adenomas are benign if left alone may transform to malignancy over the time , so they are pre-cancerous , must be removed and need colonoscopy surveillance more frequently than normal population , just don't worry see your doctor on regular basis and under go procedure if advised. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pre-cancerous: As opposed to a hyperplastic polyp, an adenomatous polyp is the type of growth in your colon that can become cancerous over time. Variants such as villous or tubulo-villous adenomas may also describe this type of polyp. If you have these removed at colonoscopy, you will require surveillance on a regular basis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Adenomatous polyp with atypia means..?Just got report from colonoscopy report.no need to worry? Let me knw sir
There are some: missing pieces of information that may be helpful. Size and location of polyp? Tubular or villous (a specific type of growth pattern the pathologist notes). Atypia designates that there may have been some dysplasia, a pre-cancerous type of change. As long as the polyp has been completely removed, no need to worry now. Colonoscopy should be repeated in future based on factors above. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Had a tubulovillous adenoma w/hgd removed via right-hemicoloectomy. Why does a repeat colonoscopy have to be done in a year if polyps grow slow?
One year is correct: Colon cancer develops from a polyp with high grade dysplasia. A history of dysplastic polyps puts you at high risk of forming new polyps and the pace of growth is uncertain, especially in a young age group. There are clear guidelines put out by the american cancer society on the suggested followup for colon polyps. If your next colonscopy shows no polyps, they will extend the time interval. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Colonoscopy 1 yr ago found 5 polyps; two Tubular adenoma under 2cm, two 2-5cm, one Tubulovillous 10-20CM. successfully removed. When should I go back?
Five years: Recommendations are that if you have adenomas five to ten years. Normal ten years. two small adenomas should not change this UNLESS you have risk factors such as a positive family history. In your case I think it reasonable and consistent with the guideliines to repeat in five years. ...Read more
Sort of the same: An adenomatous polyp is not cancer so by definition is "benign" although it harbors the potential of becoming malignant with time. Not all benign polyps are adenomatous. Some are just plain polyps with little or no malignant potential. So, adenomatous polyps are benign but not all benign polyps are adenomatous. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I ve had a polyp taken for analysis from my intestine months ago, report now says tubular adenoma , pls can you advice me what does it means ?thanks
Interchangable terms: Colon polyps is a more general term referring to location (the colon). You can have polyps anywhere in the GI tract. An adenoma refers to a specific type of cell type. Specifically, glandular tissue. Importantly, adenomatous polyps have the possibility of progressing to a cancer, and can be thought of as precancerous removing the entire polyp can go a long way to decreasing progression to cancer. ...Read more
Size, pathology: All adenomatous polyps should be removed. If they are too large to remove endoscopically, then surgery is usually warranted. If the polyp is removed completed on colonoscopy, but has a suspicious or worrisome pathology, then surgery is sometimes required to complete the resection. However, if the pathology is benign, then usually no further treatment is needed. ...Read more
I am highly susceptible to colon polyps & at 30 had a hgd adenoma removed, is a high or low fibre diet best for me to reduce frequency of the polyps?
More complex...: Than that. In general, high fiber diet (not simply bran or fiber supplements) may be helpful ( conflicting data). Adequate calcium, especially from dairy (low fat/no fat) may be helpful. Low sat fat (low meat, especially processed/sausage type) may be helpful. Aspirin or nsaids may be helpful. Need to discuss your particulars, including fam hx, polyp hx, w/ md. Follow surveillance scopes. ...Read more
My pathology reports sated I have a .4 CM rectal polyp, tubular adenoma, with no high-grade dysplasia or malignancy. When should a follow up be done?
How was your prep?: "guidelines" are one thing but other considerations come into play when planning your next colonoscopy: 1) what was the method of polyp removal (could the technique used have left polyp material behind?); 2) what was the quality of your prep (if poor, your doc will want you back sooner to complete the exam so other polyps aren't missed); 3) risk of a polyposis syndrome brings you back sooner too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on hx: If you have polyps the current thinking is that it takes over 5 yrs to develop a polyp and have it turn in to cancer. That is why the current reccomendation is to get a colonoscopy every 5 yrs with hx of polyps. Other genetic polyp formers such as familial adenomatous polyposis have a far more rapid cancer formation rate. Be sure to talk to your dr about the type of polyps you have and colonoscopy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
